The Nokia E5-00 also called Nokia E5 is a qwerty smartphone that runs on the Symbian OS v9.3 operating system. Like all phones in the Nokia Eseries it is targeted at b2b and comes with business software applications, including QuickOffice (Office document editor).[2] It was released in the third quarter of 2010. It comes in a candybar form factor. Its casing has five color options.


The E5-00 is very similar to the E72. It has more DRAM memory than the E72 but also has some important cost reductions.[2] One cost reduction is the technology of the LCDs screen. The E5-00 has a transmissive LCD display while the E-72 has a transflective LCD.[3] E5 supports only 256k display colors. Other important cost reductions are the removal of the secondary camera, the accelerometer and the digital compass.[3] The third is the full focus for the camera, instead of autofocus.[4]

The E5-00 has a smaller battery (1200 mAh) than the E-72 (1500) but has the talk-time of 8 hours and stand by time over 10 days.

It also features a GPS, both integrated and assisted, and runs Nokia Maps 3.0 and Ovi maps. Nokia E5 supports Mail for Exchange and IBM Lotus Notes Traveler for corporate emails. E5 supports HD Voice.[5]


The Nokia E5-00 features IM (instant messenger), allowing access to several chat services or communities simultaneously. These include Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, Skype, WeChat, WhatsApp and Windows Live Messenger.[6]


Reception of the E5 has generally been positive, CNET UK praised the quality of the full qwerty keyboard, but criticized the performance of the 320 x 240 pixel LCD, quoting it as "virtually impossible to see in direct sunlight".[2][7] Softpedia in contrast stated that the LCD worked perfectly in sunlight.[8]

Softpedia wrote that the E5-00 is "an all-rounder as it performs decent in all areas", though they also stated that the camera is not a very strong point but the video recording with formats 640*480 DvD Quality.[8]
